But until now, people who prefer a more individual and independent life-style and a holiday home with this kind of luxurious ambience sought in vain. It is rare to find Irish cottages with the style and class of beautiful holiday villas like those in Tuscany or the Provence. That's why Linden House on the seashore of Glengarriff Harbour is unique in the Southwest of Ireland.
Linden House Layout: (West Wing 7 bedrooms, South Wing 3 bedrooms). Full communications facilities - telephone, fax, satellite TV and video.
LINDEN HOUSE - SOUTH WING With its unique design and spectacular full length gable windows there is nothing to match Linden House Available for rent in Ireland. The two wings of the house provide 10 bedrooms and each has a spacious living room where the gable windows have glorious views of Garnish Island. The lush beauty of Garnish's famous gardens owe their luxuriance to the benign effect of the Gulf Stream. In the mild climate of the area sub-tropical tree ferns, scarlet fuchsia and giant eucalyptus flourish side by side with ancient oaks and gigantic conifers.
LINDEN HOUSE - WEST WING Linden House is the masterwork of a famous architect, designed to blend perfectly with the glorious landscape of trees, meadows and water. Built of mellow local stone, the house makes full use of organic materials - even the roof insulation is in natural cork. Built into the hillside the house is entered from the highest part of the site through a glass corridor. The long hallway of the west wing drops seawards through three different levels and leads to the gorgeous living room. Nearly 80 meters square the room has fabulous views of Glengarriff Harbour and Garnish Island.
